I think most of those used to belong to me and are now in a large bucket in my dad's garage Smiley

Re: Lego

Ahhh many years of fun playing with Lego.
I remember one of my best achievements was a Thunderbird 2 complete with removable pod plus a T4 that fitted inside.
I have to admit that I am not too keen on the Lego of today. When I was a child you just had the mulitude of square/rectangular bricks of varying sizes of red/white/grey plus green for roof tiles and some windows IIRC. I had a massive box full of them accumulated over my childhood years - sorry, Artmo, I must have had yours, too Embarrassed Never quite sure what happened to them - I think my brother got them  Cry
One's imagination had to be used to the full whereas today it seems all is mapped out for you - plug and play Lego.

Must admit, went to Billund once, but never knowingly owned LEGO bricks.

Re: Lego

I had a bit of lego given to me once at my 6th or 7th birthday:

Of course my parent who didn't like me having anything that other kids had or having anything in common with them soon managed to ensure it went to the bin..
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Lego

The early sets were fairly cheap but some of the current ones are fairly complex and cost a lot more.
I Like this one,

Re: Lego

@artmo
I think some of your bricks may have ended up here.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Lego

Read this week that Lego are introducing all pink Lego to attract more females!
I think Ed Sheeran has done so much to promote it he should be given a lifetime free supply (he has it as a rider for all his gigs)............says it helps keep him focussed and calm before a performance.
